New Worgen and Goblin Character Models
First introduced in World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, worgen and goblins are getting some long-anticipated improvements to their character models. These updates touch on every aspect of how the worgen and goblins look—from their faces to their animations. [Learn More]


New Mount: Honeyback Harvester
Stormsong’s Beekeepers have discovered a new hive in town. Alliance players can work with Barry to locate the hive and court the favor of the Hivemother in order to earn the Honeyback Harvester mount—and both factions can earn several other bee-themed toys and items. [Learn More]


The War Campaign Concludes
Tensions continue to rise between Saurfang, Anduin, and the Banshee Queen Sylvanas. Discover what awaits the Horde and Alliance in the final chapter of the War Campaign.

Join Your Friends in Their Adventures with Party Sync
Party Sync is a new feature that makes it easier than ever for friends to party up and quest together. When players activate Party Sync, everyone in the party becomes aligned to the same quest state and phase. [Learn More]

    Fuck yeah! I'm really excited to see where the war campaign ends up. Saurfang hanged for treason when?

    That was oddly quick and slightly unsettling because of that.

    How are you surprised? it's on the background downloader and it is not a huge patch.

    It seems quicker because they have kept a lot of content hidden.

    Prediction: Sylvanas is expelled from the Horde, Anduin and Saurfang make peace. Nathanos says all is going according to plan and commands the player to assist in ousting Sylvanas.

    When Sylvanas becomes a decent, morally upstanding leader.

    Exactly 1 month and 1 day after the Classic release, of course this was planned to make us pay for another month. Damn diabolical company.

    Only not really, Classic launched 26th-27th August. 4 days more completes August. Patch comes out 24-25th september. Guess what that plus 4 days makes. Spoiler Alert: It's not 1 month and 1 days. So much for your 'diabolical company'. Not their fault you cannot count. Or perhaps you think it's february? Oh that must be it.

    Month: 30 days. Not always? No, but on average, and it's also how Blizzard calculates game time. September 24th will be the 5th Tuesday after Classic release and it released on a Monday. Try to reserve your tone of superiority to yourself the next time.

    I'd like to see the sync feature for dungeons. Let high level players play with their low level friends.
